Researchers from Taiwan and the United States find, in a study of 1,752 inner-city infants born between 1960 and 1965 (the Johns Hopkins Pathways to Adulthood Study), a significant association between unsupportive maternal behavior at eight months and subsequent adult mental health. Results appear in Comprehensive Psychiatry.
